Too Many Yesterdays

Too Many Yesterdays is a series of plinth-based works documenting the changing face of British Folklore, featuring some of Britain’s most intriguing and mystical folk characters. These are figures steeped in centuries-old tradition and folklore, and each one carries a unique story and symbolism.

JJ Eteson uses various materials to bring contrast to his work; traditional bronze, cold cast iron, and digital sculpture are often used together in his works inspired by the raw energy of nature in the wilds of Yorkshire. Whereas his patinas, laid heavily over the sculptures, are his preferred choice to capture a more aged appearance, creating a moody atmosphere of the lost and forgotten.
